Community Gardens

The Sierra Club NYC works to preserve open spaces in the city and ensure access to them for community gardeners. The Sierra club is committed to advancing social and environmental justice. We want to help build strong neighborhoods through cooperative programs linking youth, educational, and cultural institutions to community gardens.

Our goal is to deepen the connection between neighborhoods and nature and urban sustainability. It is important that community gardeners are the decision makers in this process. We encourage the City of New York to support community gardening by providing funding, infrastructure, and technical support for gardeners.
